Blueberry & Ricotta Hotcake

Our last brunch before the second isolation period! It was so lovely and delicious food. We all had the ricotta hot cake and polished every last bit off to the surprise of the lovely waiter! He was impressed we could eat it all haha
Everything was perfect and more. The food was amazing and coffee as well.
This is one of the jewels in Melbourne's Cafe Crown for a reason: it ALWAYS delivers! Blueberry Hotcake is always a winner and the scrambled eggs are stunning! My sister got the Seasonal Avo and it was brilliant!
Had to wait about 20 mins for our tables which was fine once we sat down we were greeted and ordered our coffee which came in about 10 mins then ordered our food which came out in 15 mins and it was delicious
Will go back again
Soba noodle salad tasted fresh and delicious, coffee also great.
Excellent service, outstanding food! Thank you :)
Would highly recommend.
Was nice! Service was attentive without being over the top and the food was outstanding. Did lack a little atmosphere but that’s to be expected with Covid restrictions. Definitely lived up to the hype.
Fantastic food and great staff. Not cheap for brunch but totally fine if only going every so often. Good spot to catch up with friends.
Service and food were fabulous. In these strange times was so nice to go out.
Fantastic food and service. Three of us each had something different from the menu and all dishes were perfect. Will be back.
Beautiful food, great service. Would definitely recommend to family and friends
Top Paddock is one of my favourite breakfast/brunch cafes. I highly recommend it to anyone who has not been there yet.
Excellent, great service, coffee, beautiful food. And had a vegan meal.
Great service and a lovely setting. Food is delicious and portioned well but it is pricey.
The gluten free options were plentiful and delicious. They are following the restrictions diligently but allowed us to stay a little longer because there was no booking after us. Highly recommend.
Incredible dining experience even during covid! Attentive staff, great coffee and top quality food. I was worried that we would be rushed out as soon as our hour booking was up but they told us not to rush and leave when we were ready.
One of the best decorated cafes I’ve ever been to. Loved the earthy tones and plenty of natural lights. The famous hot cake was crispy on the edges which was really nice. But it could get a bit dry and dense when you get to the middle. My friend’s avocado dish was beautiful. Friendly service. Would recommend!
Was good thanks. Could've been more food but liked it otherwise
Great food, and very friendly table service. Can’t wait to come back
Amazing service. Always good food.
Good to have it back! Still as good as ever. Will be back.
I understand the current situation is affecting everyone. But the serving sizes for all meals left us needing another breakfast. So expensive for next to nothing. Not to mention the mandatory $30 spending per person.
Really rated Top Paddock before but won’t be going back with this current menu
We went to top paddock after hearing lots of good things about it but we were pretty underwhelmed. It was freezing inside, quite noisy due to the table behind us and the food was pretty average. Overall, it wasn’t really anything special.
Top Paddock never fails to impress, great food, service and hospitality. Thank you
First restaurant meal post-lockdown. Breakfast was delicious and staff were lovely
So excited to return to dining out after iso. Top Paddock was as great as always, and it was a novelty to be there when it wasn’t jam-packed and noisy as it usually is. My first post-iso brunch made me so happy! The hotcakes are life.
No complaints about food and service, meal was nice. Took a long time to be seated and asked to order, and then receive order, especially given the 1hr time limit.
After completing a body building prep and 30 week strict diet, I was craving the ricotta hotcake. It was so delicious and the whole dining experience made it a very lovely brunch with my friends.
We love going to Top Paddock. The food is always consistently good. Usually we go for breakfast/brunch, however this time it was lunch time we tried the lunch menu. I chose the slow cooked lamb shoulder with a spicy carrot and peppers accompaniment. It was outstanding.
We had a great breakfast at Top Paddock. We booked for 9am and I was glad we did. It was already getting busy. Service was excellent and all our meals were lovely. Good value, great flavours and fresh, healthy produce. Ours coffees were excellent. We will be back.
Only criticism would be the lunch menu limited due to all day breakfast being offered.
We were early but they accommodated us and the food was great.
Average. Just good. Not as good as before.
Relaxed setting for brunch catch up with friends and little ones. Great food and service - thank you!
I got a gift voucher from my daughter for Father's Day. I discovered that you can make a reservation through the web site. I had to change the time and date because I discovered clashes. It is easily done. You get an email asking you to confirm it. The salad I had was vegan and delicious. Wine is a bit pricey but the quality was good. There is a small selection but that's what they cater for. Happy to go back.
Pleasant food and average coffee.
I really like the food and the feel of Top Paddock, but we found it very, very loud. It was hard to have a normal conversation with our table, and we were only 4 people, so not a massive group.
